Ingredients

Makes 4 servings

For the Filling

  • 8

    organic peaches, pitted & roughly chopped

  • ½ cup

    water

  • ½ cup

    honey

  • 1 tbsp

    culinary-grade lavender

For the Crisp Topping

Coconut Whipped Cream

  • 1 can

    full-fat coconut cream (chilled in fridge for 1-2 days)

  • 1 tbsp

    sugar

  • 1 tsp

    vanilla extract

Preparation

Prepare the Lavender Syrup for the Peaches

  1. Combine the water, culinary lavender and honey in a small saucepan.

  2. Cook over medium-high heat, allowing the liquid to boil for 5 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat and let cool while preparing the crisp topping.

  4. Once cooled, strain into a small bowl, catching the lavender with a fine-mesh sieve.

Make the Crisp

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and coat your pan of choice (8x8 pan, or four small pans, etc.) with coconut oil. Put your mixing bowl in the freezer.

  2. Mix all crisp topping ingredients in a medium-sized bowl with a wooden spoon or your hands.

  3. Add chopped peaches directly into the baking pan and pour lavender syrup on top.

  4. Add crisp on top of the peaches in an even layer. Bake for 35-40 minutes depending upon the size of your pan(s). Fruit should be bubbling and top golden brown.

Make the Coconut Cream

  1. While the crisp cools, make your coconut whipped cream. Open your can of coconut cream and scoop off the hardened coconut cream into the chilled mixing bowl. 

  2. Add the sugar and lavender.

  3. Use a hand mixer to whip the coconut cream until firm peaks are formed.

  4. Add coconut whipped cream to the top of the Lavender Peach Crisp and serve! Enjoy!
